Default 10 round mag for Home Defense

There's a bunch of 10 round mags from different mfrs for 1911s. I have a 7rnd one now, and I figured having a single 10 for the house wouldn't be a bad idea.

Does anyone have experience with them from any mfr?

Promag and a few others are available on amazon.

The mag is one of the main things that has to work, and having one or more as spare is paramount.
The only mag "rule" you are forced to comply with when talking about self defense is that the mag should be functional. Number of rounds (as in competiton rules) does not apply here.

Default 7 rd mags ?

If you can't get the job done with 7 rds then you better just start practice fast load & reloading drills ?

If u can not do it with a 7 or 8 rd mag then you had better be reaching for your AR with a 30rd mag. I have some 10rd mags but do not use them I rely on 8rd mags instead. They seem more reliable.

“It has never been clear to me why increased magazine capacity in a defensive pistol is particularly choice. The bigger the magazine the bigger the gun, and the bigger the gun the harder it is to get hold of for people with small hands. And what, pray, does one need all those rounds for? How many lethal antagonists do you think you are going to be able to handle? Once when Bruce Nelson was asked by a suspect if the thirteen-round magazine in the P35 was not a big advantage, Bruce's answer was, "Well, yes, if you plan to miss a lot." The highest score I know of at this time achieved by one man against a group of armed adversaries was recorded in (of all places) the Ivory Coast! There, some years ago, a graduate student of mine laid out five goblins, with four dead and one totaled for the hospital. Of course there is the episode of Alvin York and his eight, but there is some dispute about that tale. Be that as it may, I see no real need for a double column magazine. - Col Jeff Cooper

I don't care about all that, it's like this for me, the police are carrying high cap mags & that means I need to also. Right now I have my FN 5.7x28 with a 30 rd mag. Gunfight or no, it gives me a nice warm feeling. Besides, I'm not trying to please all the highly skilled shooters, just myself. So, in response to the OP I'll say- Screw the ten rounder, sounds like you'll be happier with a 15 shot mag for your 1911!!

"you can never be too prepared"

maybe there are 3 or 4 or maybe I can't get a clear shot. Who knows.

I do only have one mag because I just bought the gun, and I don't need it for home defense anytime soon.

I'm looking at wilson combat and mecgar now.

When I read about police shootouts, it seems that most rounds are misses. Personal self defense is closer and more personal than what police normally encounter. A typical firearm competitor trains all the time, where most police think that range time is an inconvenience.
IMO, in a self defense situation, if my M1911a1 can't do the job of protecting my A$$, then nothing will.

I've already seen your posts on the subject. On closer inspection my kimber factory mag looks really flimsy (but it's working fine).

Cane, have you used any 10 rounders?
